    Dear chitra mam

    Thanks for highlighting on the importance of A T.Suddenly this day became popular for buying gold. I personally dont beleive in this and as you have mentioned the charity part is taking a backseat.

    bye

    Dear Chitra mami,

    well written with lot of detail. I never associated Krishna Story with this day. I had heard about this day, but did not know its significance.

    We could donate to the food banks here right? I saw from an other post this year it is on April 27th. Please confirm the date.

    Thanks and regards,

    Rekha

    Yes, this year, it falls on 27th April, Monday. Living in Chennai, I prefer direct distribution than through food banks. It is purely your convenience.
    Love,
    Chithra.

    Dear Hira,
    Please chant this:
    Aesha: dharma ghatO daththO
    Brahma vishNu s(h)ivaathmaka:
    Asya pradaanaath sakalaa:
    Mama santhu manOrathaa:
    It is very good to give drinking water to ten persons and water ten plants, creepers or trees.

    ஏஷ: த(4)ர்ம க(4)டோ த(3)த்தோ
    ப்ரஹ்ம விஷ்ணு சி(H)வாத்மக:
    அஸ்ய ப்ரதா(4)னாத் ஸகலா:
    மம ஸந்து மனோரதா:
    இன்று பகலில் யாராவது பத்து பேருக்குக் குடிக்க ஜலம் தருவதும், பத்து செடிகள், கொடிகள், மரங்களுக்காவது ஜலம் விடுவதும் சாலச் சிறந்தது.

    Love,
    Chithra

    Dear Chitra mami,

    thank you so much for your response. I will chant the shloka.

    I just saw your posting on the Sri Rama Navami. I hopefully will get a chance to read through and do some bhajans before kids pull me out.


    regards,
    Rekha

    Dear Chitra,

    Very nicely narrated the significance of AKSHAYA THIRUTHI. but as said by all, nowadays it is commercial. as per your idea it is good to help poor on that day.thanks for sharing with all.

    regards,

    raji.

    Dear Chitra maami

    As in all the part you give us ideas, suggestions and guide us, you have given about the AKSHAYA THRITHIYAI also. Great help rendered by you to us.:bowdown

    The slokam given by you is very small and good. Will be very easy to recite. Will surely recite on that day (as given by you - 27.04.09).

    Thanks for your motherly guidance for us. I don't think anyone can guide us like you. My heart felt :bowdown to you.
